Zutphen, one of the oldest cities in the Netherlands, is known as the Tower City. Large church towers, The Wine House
tower, the Water Tower, but also lots of smaller towers in one part of the old city wall constitute the cityscape. Parts of
fortifications, little courtyards, stately warehouses and merchant’s houses, together with a beautiful large square
surrounded by medieval houses, are what give the city its charm.
Because of its location by the IJssel and the Berkel, merchants in Zutphen transported their herring, butter and beer to
other far-flung Hanseatic cities. Take a boat tour with the famous Berkelsomp, an electric boat, and see this Hanseatic
city from a very different perspective.
This is why Zutphen is worth a visit for groups:
- the attractive mix of Zutphen: history, warehouses, merchant houses, architecture, shops and restaurants
- The Librije in the Walburgis Church, the oldest public reading room in the Netherlands contains books such as the first edition of Copernicus, Erasmus and the first Dutch States Bible
